The 28 year-old has attracted interest from several Championship clubs having been deemed surplus to requirements, but the Villa Park outfit have won the race for his signature for a reported fee of £8million.

Admoah has made 130 appearances since moving to the Riverside Stadium in 2013, but has found first team football hard to come by in recent months.
